Ohio State Contributing to Coach To Cure MD Weekend

Football program will raise $10,000 in name of Jacob Jarvis for a fourth consecutive year

COLUMBUS, Ohio This is the weekend in college football when every coach is on the same team. For the 10th consecutive year, college coaches nationwide will join in support of the Coach To Cure MD program to raise awareness and funds for Duchenne muscular dystrophy. Football fans at the games will be asked to donate to research projects supported by Parent Project Muscular Dystrophy.


Ohio State’s football coaches and support personnel will wear Coach To Cure MD patches on their shirts and pullovers Saturday at High Point Solutions Stadium when the Buckeyes take on the Rutgers Scarlet Knights.


In addition, the football program will continue its tradition of raising funds in the name of Jacob Jarvis, the local 17-year-old high school junior who has been an inspiration to the team since first meeting coach Urban Meyer back in the summer of 2013.


Football fans can help support the fight to end Duchenne by either going online to or by texting the word CURE to 50555 to make a $10 donation in honor of this year’s anniversary.

Jacob, as well as his little brother, Noah Studebaker, has Duchenne muscular dystrophy, the genetic disorder that results in muscle degeneration and unfortunately has no cure as of now.


The diagnosis hasn’t affected the profound impact that Jacob has had on the Buckeyes. He gives the team spirit. He gives them hope. And he gives them confidence to succeed … every time they see him. At games. In the Woody Hayes Athletic Center. Or at practice, which he regularly attends with his step-father, Chad Studebaker, and/or his mother, Traci Studebaker, and brother Noah.


“When he comes into a room, it gives you a little perspective on your life,” Ohio State quarterback J.T. Barrett has said. “He brightens up everybody each and every time he comes around us. He’s a Buckeye and just a kid that loves Ohio State and the people around Ohio State.”


Current Denver Bronco Jeff Heuerman is extremely close to Jacob.


“I think part of him was put here to change our lives … to change this football team and this coaching staff,” Heuerman said in 2014 just before the Buckeyes defeated Oregon to win the first College Football Playoff national championship.


“I’m thankful for the time I’ve had with him.”


“I love him,” Meyer has said. “I feel good when I see him. He’s like seeing my son. And he’s part of the team now.”


Simply stated, the Urban Meyer era at Ohio State wouldn’t be the Urban Meyer era without Jacob Jarvis in it. He’s truly a special young person who has impacted a tremendous amount of student-athletes, coaches and representatives of this program. That’s why for the past three years the program has raised more than $10,000 each year to give to Duchenne muscular dystrophy in the name of Jacob Jarvis.


The program will do it again this week.

·       Follow the Buckeyes on FacebookTwitter and Instagram

ANN ARBOR, Mich. – The Ohio State women’s volleyball team suffered its first Big Ten loss of the season with a 3-1 setback (25-15, 25-20, 22-25, 25-22) at No. 23 Michigan (11-4, 1-2 B1G) Friday night. The Buckeyes move to 9-5 overall and 2-1 in conference play.

With 43 assists on the night, Taylor Hughes passed Amanda Peterson (’09-12) to claim the eighth spot among the program’s all-time assists leaders with 2,765 career helpers.

Luisa Schirmer had a double-double (17 kills, 11 digs) and Madison Smeathers notched 12 kills. Lauren Witte and Ashley Wenz finished with nine and eight kills, respectively. Hannah Gruensfelder picked up 24 digs while Hughes tallied 12.

SET 1: After tying the score at five to start the match, the Wolverines grabbed a lead they wouldn’t relinquish en route to a 25-15 triumph. Smeathers and Schirmer buried four kills apiece but the Buckeyes struggled offensively behind a .073 hitting percentage.

SET 2: Ohio State started the second set down 9-4. The Scarlet & Gray battled back to lock the score at 17 but it wasn’t enough as Michigan pulled away for a 25-20 decision.

SET 3: The Buckeyes turned things around in the third. OSU totaled 18 kills and attacked .326. Smeathers killed five of her eight errorless attempts for a .625 clip. After the two teams traded points, the Buckeyes went ahead 19-15. Although the Wolverines pulled within one on multiple occasions, OSU fought to take a 25-22 win.

SET 4: Ohio State jumped out to a 17-11 lead to force a Michigan timeout. Back on the floor, the Wolverines tied the score twice before overpowering the Buckeyes for a 25-22 tally. U-M closed the set on a 14-5 run.

OSU has a quick turnaround as it heads to No. 16 Michigan State on Saturday (Sept. 30). First serve is set for 8 p.m. ET.




Ohio State women’s tennis seniors Sanford, Sneed on West Coast for ITA All-Americans Championships


WTEN: Buckeyes in California for ITA All-Americans

Seniors Sanford and Sneed to participate in national tournament


·        Release online

·        Follow the Buckeyes on FacebookTwitter and Instagram


COLUMBUS, Ohio – Ohio State women’s tennis seniors Anna Sanford and Olivia Sneed are in California for the 2017 Riviera/ITA Women’s All-American Championships. The tournament includes prequalifying Saturday-Sunday, qualifying Tuesday-Wednesday and main draw action Thursday-Sunday (Oct. 5-8). Prequalifying matches will be held on the Pepperdine campus, with qualifying and main draw matches at the Riviera Tennis Club in Pacific Palisades, Calif.


Sneed begins play for the Buckeyes in the 64-player singles prequalifying draw at 3:15 p.m. ET Saturday where she will take on Sarah Dvorak of Texas Tech. Three wins in prequalifying are needed to advance to the qualifying draw.


Sanford is in qualifying singles and will pair with Sneed in the qualifying doubles draw.


Sneed and Sanford This Season

Sanford, ranked 33rd, started her year in California, participating in the Oracle ITA Masters. In both singles and mixed doubles, she won her first round singles match before falling in round two.


Sneed opened her campaign at the Debbie Southern Fall Classic at Furman, winning the Flight 2 title with three victories. She paired with freshman Mary Beth Hurley to finish third in their doubles flight.


Buckeyes at the 2016 All-Americans

Anna Sanford competed in singles qualifying and the doubles main draw at the ITA All-Americans last year. She and Miho Kowase, the No. 4 seed in doubles, fell in their first round match, 8-6, but posted a consolation win. In singles, Sanford dropped a three set match in the first round of qualifying but rebounded to win a consolation match in three sets.


Francesca Di Lorenzo won the All-American title a season ago, the first Buckeye to win the tournament. It was the second of three third ITA national titles for the Buckeye, as she went on to defend her National Indoor title later that fall.


Looking Ahead

The annual ITA Midwest Regional begins Oct. 12 and will be hosted by Michigan in An Arbor.


Later this fall, the Buckeye squad is also set to compete at the Tennessee Fall Invite Oct. 27-29, the ASU Thunderbird Nov. 3-5 and the Lakewood Ranch Dick Vitale Intercollegiate Clay Court Classic that same weekend.




Maddy Humphrey stars but Ohio State Women’s Field Hockey loses to Kent State, 2-1

FH: Ohio State Falls to Kent State

Maddy Humphrey scored her second goal of the season in Tuesday’s loss

Box Score

Columbus, Ohio – The 23rd ranked Ohio State women’s field hockey team dropped its first contest of 2017 on Tuesday at Buckeye Varsity Field by a score of 2-1 to Kent State. Ines Delpech scored the game winner for the Golden Flashes with 4:39 left to play in the game.


A game that Ohio State (2-1 overall) dominated on the stat sheet, the Buckeyes had a hard time cashing in on their opportunities. Kylie Leblanc of Kent State racked up five saves in the Golden Flashes second win of the year (2-3 overall).


For the second game in a row, the Buckeyes found themselves facing a deficit in the first half. At the 19:01 mark, the Golden Flashes received a goal from Jamie Fries off a penalty corner with the assist going to Jessica Nesbitt.


The Buckeyes outshot the Golden Flashes to the tune of 13-3 in the 70-minute affair. In the 25th minute of the first half, Maddy Humphrey scored an acrobatic goal after receiving a delicately placed long-distance pass from Juliette Duquesne. After Humphrey secured the ball on her stick, she was on the left side of the circle and had a one-on-one with Leblanc of Kent State. Humphrey poked the ball out to the right, dodged the goalie, and then dove to her right and whipped the goal in for her second goal of the season.


Humphrey’s career goal total is now up to 36 which ties her for 10th all-time in program history with her former teammate Peanut Johnson (2012-15). In addition to goals scored, Humphrey’s career point total now sits at 92, only four points behind Lucy Clayton for 10th all-time in program history.


Closing out the first half with a penalty corner, Maartje Bongers nearly gave Ohio State the lead heading into the locker room. With Humphrey taking the Buckeyes’ second penalty corner of the first half, Bongers’ shot easily beat the keeper but was just a tad bit too wide and ricocheted off the post and out of bounds to end the half.


The Buckeyes dominated ball possession in the second half and made a final charge after Kent State took the one goal lead. Trailing by one with less than five minutes to play, Ohio State pulled Liz Tamburro from the net for an extra attacker for the final push.


The one-man advantage helped Ohio State secure four straight penalty corners in the closing minutes. Of the four penalty corners, only Esther Clotet Alsina’s shot made it to the keeper and Leblanc turned it away. The other three opportunities for Ohio State were all blocked before reaching the goal keeper.


Ohio State hits the road for the next two weeks starting with away games at Miami (OH) and No. 19 Wake Forest this Friday (Sept. 8) and Sunday (Sept. 10).

The Buckeyes are 27-26-11 in lidlifters all-time and 8-8-4 under 21st-year head coach John Bluem. They have opened their home field 15 times under the current regime, going 8-4-3 in those outings.


The annual Bert and Iris Wolstein Classic, now in its 12th year, is named in honor of the family that first brought professional soccer to Ohio in 1979. From 1979-1988, the late Bert Wolstein (2004) was the owner and president of the Cleveland Force of the Major Indoor Soccer League. Since them, the Wolstein support of Ohio State has been nothing short of generous. The most recent major act of a giving was a $1.5 million gift to the Department of Athletics, resulting in the naming of the field at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium, as part of a $4.9 million total gift to the university in September 2012. The Wolsteins previously made a major contribution in 2001 to the Ohio Stadium renovation project, prompting the dedication of the Iris S. and Bert L. Wolstein Football Center in the southwest tower.



The Buckeyes are 18-11-7 all-time in their early season home tournament, including a 9-5-6 mark in the last 10 seasons. Ohio State has captured the tournament title six times (2006-2009, 2011 and 2012). Last year, the team lost in overtime in both games against Virginia Tech and UC Santa Barbara.



·         Ohio State returns four starters from the 2016 squad and welcomes 18 newcomers. Fifteen of the 18 newcomers are freshmen. The Buckeyes lost nine letterwinners and seven starters from the team that finished 5-13-1 overall and 3-4-1 in conference play.

·         The Scarlet and Gray bring back their leading point scorer in senior forward Nate Kohl, a second team All-Big Ten selection with 14 points (6g, 2a), a year ago. Junior midfielder Abdi Mohamed, honored as a second team selection, also returns after scoring 11 points (4g, 3a). Goalkeeper Parker Siegfried is back too after earning All-Big Ten Freshmen honors in 2016.

·         The Buckeyes were picked seventh in the Big Ten preseason poll announced last week. Maryland was the preseason favorite followed by Indiana, Wisconsin, Michigan State, Michigan and Penn State.

·         Senior back Hunter Robertson joined Kohl and Mohamed on the Big Ten Preseason Honor List.

·         The 2017 incoming class ranked seventh in the country by College Soccer News. The Buckeyes were one of four schools in the nation to have three straight Top 10 classes along with North Carolina, Wake Forest and Virginia.  The group hails from three different countries, while five members are natives of Ohio. The incoming Buckeyes feature seven defenders, five forwards, four midfielders and two goalkeepers.

·         The tournament begins a four-game homestand for the Buckeyes. Ohio State welcomes Lehigh Sept. 1 and Wright State Sept. 4.


The Panthers are making their first trip to Columbus since the 1990 campaign. Pitt returns 12 players from a year ago and added 10 new faces to the roster. Head coach Jay Vidovich enters his second year at the helm of the Pitt soccer program. Highlighting the returners is senior defender Bryce Cregan, junior defender Tom Moxham and redshirt sophomore goalkeeper Mikal Outcalt all of whom played significant minutes in 2016. Pitt leads the all-time series, 6-4-2. The Buckeyes won the last meeting by a 1-0 score in Columbus in 2003.


The Panthers return to Columbus for the first time in six years. FIU was picked to finish third in the C-USA Preseason coaches’ poll, while three players were placed on the All-Conference USA Preseason Team. Headlining the trio is junior forward Santiago Patino who was tabbed the C-USA Preseason Offensive Player of the Year. Joining Patino on the preseason team was senior defender Paul Marie and sophomore midfielder Joris Ahlinvi. The Panthers, led by first-year head coach Kevin Nylen, finished 2016 with a 10-7-2 record and advanced to their second-straight C-USA Tournament championship game. Ohio State defeated FIU, 3-1, in the 2011 edition of the Wolstein Classic.


The Dukes were voted to finish the season tied with College of Charleston in sixth place in the Colonial Athletic Association preseason coaches’ poll. Redshirt junior forward Billy Metzler was tabbed an All-CAA honorable mention. JMU won five of its last six games in 2016, including a four-match win streak to end the season. The Dukes are guided by third-year head coach Tom Foley.



Head coach John Bluem and his staff welcomed a total of 18 new faces to its 2017 roster. The incoming class is made up of three transfers and 15 freshmen –Kevin BlackwoodJohn SwannMichael ProsukJoshua Jackson-KetchupAdrian RamosWill HirschmanJared AndersonJacob GoyenTheo AlexisDevyn EtlingJake ScheperDavid AbonceChristian HarterXavier KennedyMatt KileyChase CarraherMitch Bergman and Gabe Harms. After missing last year due to injury, redshirt junior transfer Brady Blackwell is also ready to make an impact in the Buckeye midfield.



Ohio State holds a 107-44-26 record (.677) in Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium since the facility opened in 1999, including 14 victories in the last two seasons.



The Buckeyes’ schedule includes 11 matches at Bert L. & Iris S. Wolstein Field at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium this season with home Big Ten action kicking off Sept. 12 against Penn State. Admission is free to all Ohio State men’s soccer regular-season home games.



Ohio State will be shown on the Big Ten Network against Penn State Sept. 12 in Columbus. Ten additional regular season home games will be streamed online through BTN Plus with one remaining home game on BuckeyeVision on The semifinals and final of the Big Ten Tournament Nov. 10-12 also will be shown live on BTN.



Ohio State is under the direction of 21st-year head coach John Bluem. The 2014 Big Ten Coach of the Year, Bluem has guided the team to 10 NCAA Tournament appearances (2000-01-04-05-07-08-09-10-14-15), four Big Ten championships (2000-07-09-15) and a College Cup Final in 2007. Bluem’s career record sits at 284-171-68 (.608) and has claimed four conference coach of the year awards (most by an active B1G coach). He is two wins shy of 200 in his career at Ohio State. He is assisted by Ian Gordona, who was promoted to associate head coach heading into his fourth season at his alma mater. Joining the staff this past off-season was assistant coach Adam Pearce, who will be coaching the Buckeye goalkeepers this fall. Matt Appel, a member of the 2016 team, will be a student assistant coach this fall.


Ohio State will continue its four-game homestand with a non-conference match against Lehigh Sept. 1 at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium. That match will be available on BTN Plus ($).
